Hie thee hence, etc. 

Shakespeare's birthday was this week. I forget how old he would have been, but I do remember that my friend Ken sent me this cool and amusing article:

20 Words We Owe to William Shakespeare

I have on my refrigerator a set of word magnets someone gave me several years ago, the Shakespearian edition. I put together a few phrases from his plays, and then my dirty mind kicked in and I came up with this: "my lordship doth hath a seemly codpiece". I used to take it down before company came over, and than it occurred to me how few people even know what a codpiece is/was. I guess I'm easily amused.
